I showed the preparation for Scarlett’s birthday cake in yesterday’s post. A week later, I defrosted the cake and the decorations were dry; a few broken, mostly because I’m clumsy.
Lenka suggested that I watch YouTube videos on icing a cake with ready rolled icing before I started it – this is what I really should have done before icing the Spiderman cake. That’s what I spent my lunch hour doing the day before I put it all together.
No idea what year this video was filmed, but this one with Pat Lock was the most useful one by far. I wrote myself a checklist of everything I had to do based mostly on this video!
I’ve put together a little gallery of the various stages – the photos explain better than I can! If you click on the first one, you can go through them in order (and captioned!).
What a lovely day, and the cake was enjoyed by all of us at the tea party, we took some to nursery and I took some to work. Now to buy a cake smoother…
